The film is a 1969 Italian/Spanish co-production. It was not released in the US until a significant time after it was release in its coutries of origin. It was originally published in the US with a valid copyright notice (C RAM FILMS INC MCMLXIX) so it was not "Public Domain" before GATT and remains protected for the full US copyright term (95 Years).
Many PD DVD distributers release fully copyright protected but unregistered works from 1964 onwards because they are not subject to statutory penalties if their copyright infringement occured before registration occurs.
Taking, for example, a typical Mill Creek 50 Pack like "Drive-In Movies" only about 10 of the movies are PD. The rest are made up of "free from statutory penalties" movies and independent movie and video catalogues that Mill Creek have licensed. There are not that many truely PD movies from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Mill Creek has also changed their business model and now work almost exclusively in copyright material. They have licensed a number of TV series (the entire Robin Hood series, Wanted Dead or Alive, Ironside) and Movies (Crown International Picture Catalogue, Bill Rebane's films, many more recent Indy Horror and Sci-fi films.)
Only Public Domain movies should be added to IA under the user terms.
